    Santro is a pleasure to drive and parts are of good quality but its such a pain when you want to sell it

    i currently own a mehran and its good but no AC plus i live in peshwar and santro is least demanded car here no one likes it ppl buy crap mehrans and altos just for the sake of resale and i say if any car is good keep it and just my example kept mehran for 6 years still if ac wasn't an issue i would have kept as for the Resale i don't care as we keep cars for a long time if i care about market price etc then i will never sale mehran

    Maintenance cost of Alto is less than santro

    i have driven both cars , both are good in there catagories but u know suzuki is easy and cheap to maintain.

    If Maintenance is not any issue , then go for santro otherwise Alto.
    Better to understand a little than to misunderstand a lot

    @poster bro santro(korean manufactured)
    alto(desi tin made)
    parts of santro are ''BIT'' expensive but not much expnsive than alto's.general overhaul of engine costs around 22k from nut to bolt..
    drive,comfort,average,looks are far betr than alto.santro is damn powerful in 1000cc category i must say,i own one nd (sold it to frnd but bot it bck) it ws stage1 cleared nd it used to kick the local 1.3's easily.so santro is a v good car in 1.0l category,regarding price of parts,well the quality of parts justify the diffrnce in price from the parts of alto.

    Go for Alto if u want to keep the vehicle for next five years.
    Santro parts availability will be an issue in upcoming years as the company is no more operating in Pakistan.

    regarding parts(no issue yara evrythng is avlabl,santro isnt that cmplexd vehicle a mec who can repair a civic or a 2nzfe can easily do work over santro,u said u r gng to keep it for 5years so why u worry abt resale nd its not tht bad here in punjab santro has a damn stable market,regarding roads santro respond v well on bumps nd rough roads as cmpared to alto.

    Bro i owned a Santro a few months back and believe me that i really feel sorry why i sold that car. It was really comfy car. No issue of parts etc. No mechanical problems. it is a tough car. i really enjoyed having it. Yup resale maybe a problem but then u know people here like mehran and alto which i dont even consider cars. Go for a santro and u'll love it.
